What in the world are the Paramount Newsreels still doing under copyright. What-ever do they plan to do with those; Start the Paramount Ancient News Reel Channel?

They license the footage for documentaries and the like for $50+ per second.

I can almost believe that. However, I have about ten Paramount Newsreels on video that I culled from of all places TCM (Turner Classic Movies)They ran them as part of their "one reel wonders." This said, I seriously doubt Time Warner paid for the aiiring of those newsreels on TCM. Somthing leads me to belive that there must be a few that slipped past copyright renewals along with POPULAR SCIENCE films that have also been showing up on TCM. Of course, who the heck want's to do the research to find out which one's are copyright and which one's aren't? I also believe that 99% of those 'one reel wonders' run in between the films on TCM are all in the Public Domain since prior to Ted Turner discovering them in an abandond salt mine there is no way, given the state of MGM prior to it's demise that those had their copyrights renewed. I know that TCM also shows quite a few PD features that they have added to their library. I got way off topic here. LOL

If you are making a documentary for major distribution the insurance companies involved require copyright clearance documentation and indemnification from stock footage houses.

The Film Superlist books indicate proof of the opposite. MGM did renew most of their short films.
